Reston Association‘s work on its first 10-year parks and recreation plan is underway.

The organization has kicked off a community survey to gather information on how it should approach the planning process for future and current parks and recreation needs.

The survey is open through June 30 and is available to all. The survey is anonymous and takes roughly 15 minutes to complete.

“One of RA’s missions is to optimize the use of land and investments related to leisure opportunities for our members,” Reston Association said. “A planning process is conducted roughly every 10 years to ensure that our parks and recreational facilities and programs are optimally meeting both the current and future needs of our residents.”

Mike Leone, a spokesperson for RA, said the board is expected to hear the results of the community survey at when it meets in September.

The survey is intended to determine current use of parks and recreation programs and facilities, future uses, and what kind of new facilities and programs should be considered in the future.

The survey is available online. Survey stations are also planned at RA ballfields, community events, courts and pools.
